In the second set, Cleveland State took a 4-3 lead to start the frame. When Snead State stormed back to make the score 9-5, Burke again recorded a much-needed kill to put a stop to their run. Sydney Allen also recorded a kill at the 12-8 mark, and after another Lady Parsons run, Madeline Dasher killed the ball to score. However, the Cougars were unable to battle back, as they fell 25-10 in the set.
In the third set, Rileigh Barbour got the Lady Cougars off to a fast start, posting an ace to make the score 1-0. They also took another lead at the 12-11 mark of the set.
